Attraction Information

Fall down the rabbit hole into a world of elves and goblins on the Bolton Abbey Treasure Hunt Trail. It’s an adventure for kids who love all things fantastical!

A couple of devious creatures have been on a stealing spree, pinching jewels and all sorts from the unsuspecting locals. You’ve been summoned to hunt down their goblin hoard so begin with a dash of your own magic: an instantly downloadable PDF. This is packed with clues and will be an essential ally against those dreadful beasties.

The search should take around 3 to 5 hours to complete depending on which route you take, with a choice between 2 miles and a hefty 7. Either way, there’s plenty to see, from the famous Bolton Abbey and beyond! As you tramp through Strid Woods and past the Cavendish Pavilion, keep your eyes peeled; when elves are abroad nothing is quite what it seems...
